Top 25 Concert Photos of 2013

Throughout the entire year, LiL has had the extreme privilege of covering over 200 phenomenal concerts in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. 2013 has proved to be our finest year of live music coverage yet. And we could not have accomplished this feat without all our top-notch photographers and hard hitting writers. Our thanks extends to the many concert promoters, PR and venues that provide us the access we need to deliver our stories to you. We continue to change the landscape of independent music coverage in Toronto like no one else.

This year, we covered many up and coming new artists to international headlining acts to legends. We also pride ourselves in being passionate about a wide-range of musical genres from pop, indie-rock, country, metal, rap, classic rock and the list goes on. We love them all.

Expect to see even more from us in 2014 as we continue to prove that we are best independent pop-culture and entertainment publication in Toronto.

In no particular order, we present a 25-piece gallery showcase of our best concert photographs accompanied by their full reviews. These were handpicked by Randall Vasquez (Director of Photography) and myself, not only for the technical aspect, but the experience.  Enjoy and have a Happy New Year!
